On this blog I intermittently share music that features on my writing playlist. You can check out the recommendations under the 'Music Inspo' tag. Today I'm listening to Arlo Parks and highly recommend this blissful offering from her forthcoming EP.
Arlo Parks, Second Guessing (October 2019)
Why: Parks is a poet and singer based in London. The sublime "Second Guessing" is the first track from her forthcoming EP, Sophie. Her debut EP Super Sad Generation was released earlier this year. This dreamy piece of pop music contemplates the challenge of constantly trying to meet other peoples expectations and second guessing yourself along the way. Much like the quiet, understated video, this is the kind of song you want to listen to at night, staring at the ceiling and imagining a sky full of stars.
